Jira, Atlassian's hugely popular issue tracking software allows developers to collaborate on development tasks. Developers spend a lot of their time in there, so it's a good place to catch their attention when you want something like a security issue fixed.

โš ๏ธ Warning: We only recommend connecting using an "integration user" (a user that has the minimum permissions, only to be used for the Jira -> Intruder integration)

Connect your Jira instance to Intruderย 

  1. To connect Intruder to your Atlassian Jira account, the Integrations Page in the Intruder portal and press the green Add button on the Jira tab.

    2. Enter the Site URL of your Jira instance, then enter the Email Address and API Token of a Jira user with appropriate permissions. See the Atlassian docs for more information on how to generate an API token.

    3. Then click 'Connect Jira' and you're done! ๐ŸŽ‰

๐Ÿšจ Please note that Unassigned Issues must be enabled in your Jira instance for the integration to work.

Manually export issues to Jira

  1. To manually export an Intruder issue to Jira, go to the Issues page and click the Jira icon.

  2. Select the Jira project you want to export the issue to, then pick the Jira issue type. Click Submit and that issue will be exported to your Jira project.

๐Ÿšจ Both custom issue type and default issue type have to include the โ€œsummaryโ€ and โ€œdescriptionโ€ fields . All other fields must be non-mandatory. Any deviation from these instructions will cause the integration to fail.

Automatically create Jira issues for any new security weaknesses

Alternatively, our integration can automatically export all new security weaknesses to Jira as soon as we discover them. This ensures your dev team is always in the loop and notified of any new security problems.

To activate automatic export, select the Jira project you want us to export to and what the Jira issue type for any newly created Jira issues should be.

๐Ÿšจ By default, we'll only export any new issues that are at least medium severity but you can use the drop down options to adjust that. You can also find a 'Test Integration' button here which will create a test issue in your Jira environment to check that the integration is working as expected.

Note: If you're using the Jira on-premise solution, we recommend you segment it from the Internet using a Firewall but allow inbound traffic from the Intruder portal ( or in order for the exports to work.

Note: Jira integration is currently only available for customers on our Pro, Premium and Vanguard plans.
